What is the correct way to pass?

Passing

When making a pass you want to use a sweeping motion. Rather than "slapping" at the puck, begin with the puck on the heel of your stick and during the sweeping motion, the puck should spin to the toe of your stick and off to your teammate. Like shooting, remember to point the toe of your stick at your target at the end of your follow through to increase accuracy.

I find that passes are harder to catch when the puck is spinning, which is caused by the sweeping motion.
